Remedy Entertainment has announced a partnership with 505 Games to co-develop and co-publish Control 2, the anticipated sequel to 2019's third person science fiction shooter. Take a look at an official quote from the co-CEOs of 505 Games and Digital Bros Group:
“We are excited to deepen our cooperation with Remedy and continue the success story of Control together. Since its launch in 2019, Control has sold over 3 million copies,” say Rami and Raffi Galante, co-CEOs of Digital Bros Group/505 Games. “Control is the biggest investment 505 Games has ever made, so it has a special place in our hearts. We are grateful to the whole player community that has made Control such a long-lasting and loved game, and are even more excited to bring out Control 2,” Rami and Raffi Galante continue.
Game director Mikael Kasurinen also chimes in and says: "With Control 2, we’ll take another leap into the unknown. It’ll be an unexpected journey. It’ll take a while, but to put it mildly, this is the most exciting project I’ve ever worked on. It’s still early days, but it will be worth the wait."
